Humming sound from the rear when I go over 60mph

When I go above 60mph, there is a humming noise coming from the rear of the car. It goes off as soon as I go below 60mph.
Is this a problem related to the bearing or hub?

From your symptoms of noise from rear ? i would say your suspision is correct it is probably one of hub bearings in the early stage of wear/burning out front wheels chocked raise each rear wheel in turn and with park brake off check for undue movement /rock in wheel/s and any noise when you spin ? if oone shows to be suspect ? advise you replace both sides ? this is not too expensive a repair and can be diy if you have tools and confidence? bearings come as a kit for each wheel/hub if you have time you will save $$$$$ in garage cost? hope this helps/inspires you best wishes from uk

1998 mercury sable gs has humming noise coming from rearend drivers side.


noise travels in a car so what appears to be from a side may be coming from a center
if the hum is harmonic ( increase and decrease in volume level)or is dependent of speed it could be a tight "u" joint in the drive shaft
reverse is really not in the equation as you would never be going backwards as fast as forwards
I take it that the mileage at purchase is 70,000miles not 170,000 miles
could be normal drive line noise getting more pronounced as the suspension bushes firm up with age or collapse with age so rear engine mount, diff and suspension rubbers checked

Sounds (pun intended) like a problem with the differential (that globe that connects to the drive-shaft and to the two rear tires. Maybe, one wheel has bad bearings, adding resistance into the differential.

2000 Chevy Blazer 4x4...started making a horrible loud noise after my cruise control went out. I have recently replaced my hub and the brake pads and the CV axle. The noise comes and goes and only happens...


does it get louder above 45-60mph? and much quieter at low speeds. It could be wheel bearings, a rear differential or front differential. If its a grinding humming noise its wheel bearings, listenin to see if theyre coming from the front or rear, left or right, or both when your driving to know what wheel bearing are bad. If its a whinning noise, its probably a differential. check and listen to hear if its coming from the front or rear. Also, check for loose plastic around the wheels. Lastly check your tires for uneven or choppy wear. move your hands front to back on the top of the tire. does it feel really choppy and rough, maybe you just need new tires

It is a humming sound that increases in intensity with exceleration but quits when acceleration is let up or speed has leveled off


Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing or the rear end is low on gear lube.Check the gear lube very soon so as not to ruin the rear end.
